Just a Note

Good Morning Crafters

I hope you are all well and enjoying our tutorials.

Today it is my turn to share a tutorial with you.

The products I have used from Imagination Crafts are:

Black Satin Card (I used the white side)
Musical Note Stencil

I have also used Baby Oil too.

In an A4 plastic lid I add an inch of warm water and a couple of drops of baby oil.
I laid the satin card onto the water to absorb the oil and lifted it of and laid onto glass mat.

I then spritzed Inkadinks Mango, Cranberry Sorbet and Candy Floss over the wet card and left to dry

Once dry I inked around the edges with Adirondak Butterscotch and Raisin.
I mixed Cranberry Sorbet with Sparkle Gel then stencilled this through the musical note stencil and put this to one side.

On another piece of spritzed card I stamped the Lillies with Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder twice, cut out the main image then the lillies.

To finish off I wrapped pink satin ribbon around the decorated back ground, matt and layered onto black pearlescent card.  Matt and layered the decoupaged lillies with silicone glue.
To finish off I added a bow, musical note charm with ribbon and 3 black gems.

The Inkadinks mix really well with the Sparkle Gel to create your own bespoke background.

Thank you for stopping by today

This is what it will look like after removing excess powder

Colour another piece of black card with mica powder and stamp poppy image onto it with Versamark, which will lift off the powder and expose the design.
